Drawing Australian Gliders
Primary school-aged children can learn about the threatened gliding possums and other Australian animals in a new book Drawing Australian Gliders.
Drawing Australian Gliders was created by Canberra-based artist Kate Smith and Kate’s ecologist parents, Dr Peter and Dr Judy Smith. The book is published by P & J Smith Ecological Consultants.
The book aims to teach children about the Greater Glider, the tiny Feather-tail Glider and the Sugar Glider.The book introduces these species and provides information on their unique habits, history and other interesting facts. Then it teaches some essential drawing tips, and finally, the reader is taken on a drawing adventure, learning how to create a masterpiece by seeing the world through an artist’s eyes.
The book is available for purchase at selected bookshops and through the K2W shop it is also available to download from Kate Smith Art with additional worksheets and lessons.
